• Nandy said the wedding plans were on the way even before she knew she was pregnant.
Tanzanian singer Nandy and lover Bill Nass are expecting their first child together ahead of their planned wedding later this month.
The couple unveiled their pregnancy on Thursday on their social media platforms.
Their wedding's final preparations are underway.
Speaking to Bona TV, on Friday Nandy said she is very ready for her new journey.
"I am ready for marriage but also, I am afraid of so many things in marriage but the greatest thing we have been told is about being patient with each other," she said.
"God will help me to practice patience in my marriage."
Speaking about why she finally revealed the pregnancy, Nandy said she was tired of denying her child in interviews.
"I think we wanted to reveal the pregnancy and my project. Despite all these things, I still remain to be an artist and life has to go on. I can't keep on hiding the pregnancy all the time," she said.
"Pregnancy is a blessing and as you know, there are so many people who are struggling to look forward to being parents. We pray for all of them. With our jobs, I could no longer hide since jobs still need me. I hate every time I am doing an interview and deny my baby. I used to feel bad while lying that I am not pregnant."
Nandy was then asked how she learnt she was expecting. She said her love Bill Nass noticed it first.
"It was during a tour and I changed my attitude and that kept disturbing him. He asked his mum about my behaviour change and she was the one who told him," she said.
"We checked at home and it turned out positive and he was like, that's why the behaviour change. He was so happy and I was so happy. It is something we both wanted and wished for. "
On why she will do her wedding while pregnant, Nandy said the wedding plans were on the way even before she knew she was pregnant.
"The pregnancy came as an extra blessing. All our plans were underway even before the pregnancy so we could not stop the wedding. It does not hold me. I wished to have a baby in my marriage and God gave me a pregnancy before we officially get married and I am grateful," she said.
